newsvine - movie review: the adjustment bureau  
Love. What is it? Most times it's made up of coincedences which intertwine with chance and fate and can be tormentful as time passes but true love? True love stories never have endings. They start, each day you're with the other; love stays fresh and true when you're with the one that matters most to you. Afterall, love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles and leaps fences, can penetrate walls to arrive at its destination full of hope. Love is about the battle.

Check out my latest review on a film, I highly recommend: The Adjustment Bureau...

Movie Review: The Adjustment Bureau

It is said that each man is the architect of his own fate as he dreams of his destiny, without fear and yearns to make it a reality for when the time is right. However, we are guided through life with the notion that we have our own decisions to make, tinkering with the thought of choices and freewill. But is freewill a misconception? Is our fate already predetermined?

George Nolfi’s directorial debut The Adjustment Bureau dabbles with the concept that there is only an appearance of freewill and that all of life’s major choices are predetermined by a higher authority and the path they’ve chosen for us. Nolfi, who also wrote the screenplay loosely based on Phillip K. Dick’s short story, “The Adjustment Team”, dives deep into the age old debate of freewill vs. fate with a fresh spin on the philosophies of life and theology, with regards to fate, destiny, chance and the greater picture of our very being.

*clears throat* This is a funny scene and proves because it's been documented as the most annoying sound in the world care of Jim Carrey a la "Dumb and Dumber".

This scene from "Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls" has two bits of annoying sounds (Canadian moose mating and a yak!) but it's also one of my favourite scenes. Peanut? LOL!

Good day and bumblee tuna.

So, I managed to get my 2008 Fall/Pre-Winter Movie preview up on Newsvine and as much as I would like more attention for it, it's not garnering a lot. Sometimes I get really fed up and wonder is all this really worth it? I should probably drop the subject of trying to write for others and just write for myself. I really ought to get back to the second manuscript. It's eating me inside that the year is almost over and all I've got to show is a lot of research of Como, Sudan and New York and a nearly done first chapter that really looks and sounds much more mature and interesting than anything else I've ever written.

I just want everything to happen now. Agent. Published book. The sweet escape...

But I've got to have faith. As corny as it sounds, I've honestly got Michael Johns in my head from when he got the golden ticket to Hollywood, saying to everyone, "it can happen".

All I've got to do is wait.

It can happen.

Speaking of movies (earlier), The Curious Case of Benjamin Button looks really interesting and I'm really looking forward to it this winter. But, that's not in my movie preview because the movie releases in winter, not pre-winter. Get it? Winter starts November 21st or something. I forget. But whatever. Read the article if you have the time...
